Our range of walking tours on the North Cornwall Coast stretch of the South West Coast Path offers 57 miles of challenging walking from Hartland Quay to Padstow, with rugged coastline much of the way. South of Padstow, the going gets easier with the sandy beaches of Porthcothan and the popular surfing beaches around Newquay and St Ives.
South of St Ives, its tough going to the lighthouse at Pendeen Watch. This area is littered with the remains of Cornwall's mining past. Onwards to Land's End and the view towards Bishop Rock and the Scilly Isles, the Minack Theatre at Porthcurno and then Penzance and Mount's Bay with the spectacular St Michael's Mount. The Lizard peninsula now beckons and the most Southerly point in Britain with its lighthouse, before we turn north to reach the busy port of Falmouth.
The nature of the South Cornwall coast is less wild than its North Atlantic neighbour, with numerous sheltered coves and picturesque fishing villages - Potloe, Portscatho, Mevagissey, Polperro etc and small towns - Charlestown, Fowey and Looe. As you approach Plymouth, you walk around Rame Head with its chapel to finally leave Cornwall by the ferry from Cremyll.
A 28 mile trail starting from the lovely harbour village of Padstow, the route follows along Little Petherick Creek, over fields and woodlands, moors and valleys to Fowey. Along the way, the route visits a number of religious sites from shrines, standing stones, holy wells, chapels and churches.
There are over 3,000 miles of inland paths including the wilds of Bodmin Moor, with the highest point in the county being Brown Willy at 420m.
The Cornish coastline offers great variety every step of the way with the rugged North Cornwall coast facing the Atlantic, the surfing beaches around Newquay, the spectacular Land's End and Lizard penisulas and the sheltered coves and small fishing villages on the south coast. Away from the coast, the inland areas are often less well explored and offer great "get away from it all" walking.
